Liverpool offers ‘free’ culture

BBC News Item
“Liverpool’s residents are set to receive free theatre, music and arts tickets worth more than £250,000 on Monday.
More than 30,000 2-for-1 tickets – valid at eight cultural centres – will be enclosed in council tax letters. “
Oo, for once I can’t wait to get my council tax bill. It will be interesting to see how many of these offers are taken up and how much (if anything) its costing the council. If the council are covering the cost I think maybe the money would be better spent supporting the small independent galleries who are struggling to find the money to pay their local taxes and rents.
